Wearables, Xables

Wearable technology is now commonplace. AppleWatch and a myriad smartwatches are offering ever increasing health insight and there are countless more niche products, offering tailored solutions to tackle serious health opportunities from fall detection, atrial fibrillation and Parkinson’s to name a few.

As we hear strong signs from the government and NHS on the desire to invest and adopt new technologies to provide a step change in care and efficiency, we now look to preventative, predictive and continuous monitoring can aid decision making and keep people out of hospital. 

Human connected technology is now not just about Wearables, but can be about internal monitoring as well. As technology shrinks and becomes more powerful, this represents a huge opportunity for further health and wellness innovation.

Join us for a full-day schedule of talks and discussions on wearables, ingestible and implantable technologies for health and wellness in the global society.
